DIMACS Workshop on Algorithms for Green Data Storage
Month: December 2013
Date: December 16
Name: DIMACS Workshop on Algorithms for Green Data Storage
Location: DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University, Piscataway, New Jersey, 08854-8018.
A large body of recent literature proposes using erasure and network coding as a more bandwidth and storage efficient way to provide reliability and accessibility of stored content. These smart storage algorithms promise to significantly cut data-center energy use, but have so far been studied and evaluated mostly in simplified theoretical settings, without taking into account all systems issues that may arise by introducing the algorithms into practical storage systems. The working group and workshop intend to bring experts in coding and queueing theory for distributed storage together with distributed storage systems experts in order to better understand and find ways to evaluate how well the practice would match the theoretical predictions of energy savings. Furthermore, other problems that arise in data storage practice and could potentially benefit from smarter algorithms will be presented.
